Home For An Extended Family
The full height windows of the two story living room face onto a sheltered patio. A balcony off of the second floor bedroom corridor connects to the patio via a spiral staircase which becomes a major sculptural element.
The French doors from both the living room and the billiard/game room open directly onto small, private patios so that guests can move in and out of the rooms at will. The recessed house entrance is between the patios, its large roof overhang is glazed so that the entrance is always bathed in light.
